Abstract:

The immigration debate is at a fever pitch, and some politicians insist that a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico will solve our problems. But what does the common person know about topography of this border? With approximately 350 million crossings per year, the Mexico-US border is the most frequently traversed international border in the world. Beginning where the Rio Grande empties into the Gulf of Mexico and working its way backward, step-by-step, all the way to the Pacific Ocean, TECTONICS explores the landscapes and physical qualities of this 2,000-mile border.. Laden with layers of meaning, its images highlight striking contrasts between each side of the border, and tensions between stunning natural environments and man-made structures that seem to impose their will on them. This silent, observational work achieves the feat of bearing witness to a boundary that shapes lives, while evoking an atmosphere of being watched.. "This epic traversal of the Mexican-American border ... [forges] a provocative politics of its own, based on notions and instruments of surveillance."--Jonathan Rosenbaum, Sight & Sound Magazine.
